One of the primary activities of the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission is to track issues that directly impact our criminal justice stakeholders and to provide reliable criminal justice data and policy guidance for Arizona's elected leaders and policymakers.
As a non-partisan entity, it is our goal to bring together criminal justice stakeholders to understand how policy changes may impact local, county, and state law enforcement agencies.
As such, over the last several years, ACJC has been successful in improving criminal justice systems across various state agencies, closed loopholes in laws, and are currently working on ways to improve the delivery of our criminal justice data to policy makers and researchers.
During the 2021 Legislative session, Governor Ducey signed HB2166 allowing ACJC to conduct a statewide inventory of criminal justice systems. Below is the initial findings report.
The Arizona Criminal Justice Commission monitors and provides recommendations for constitutional, statutory and administrative revisions that are necessary to maintain a cohesive and effective criminal justice system.
